    Lenora - I prefer Lenore. But overall this a nice, underused name.
    Junia - Nice, just not my cup of tea.
    Mirabel - Not my favourite "bel" name.
    Bryony - Absolutely lovely.
    Cosima - Also lovely, but a little "Out there".
    Cosette - If you're a big Les Mis fan, great.
    Colette - sounds dated to me.
    Zelda - LOVE. Super cute, full of spunk. Makes me think of Zelda Fitzgerald.
    Beatrix - Like Beatrice better.
    Camille - Very lovely.
    Cordelia - I like this one too, just not as much as some as the others on your list.
    Elsa - Very pretty. But since this was just used for the Disney Movie "Frozen", there is always a chance that this will get very popular. Not sure if popularity is a huge factor for you.
    Zora - I kind of like it. Also sounds a bit trendy.
    Nola - cute.
    Sylvia - I love Sylvia. A name that will age well.
    Tamsin - Makes me think of the Tasmanian Devil.
    Tess - Nice, a little plain. Prefer Tessa.
    Sidonie - Nope, don't like.
    Wren - Cute.
    Roxana - Not my style, but not bad.
    Delta - NO.
    Miriam/Mariam - Love Miriam!
    Sybil - Its nice, just also not really my style.

    These names would be lovely as first names.

    Lenora - I prefer Leonora and Eleanor but this is pretty.
    Junia - An underused Biblical gem
    Cosima - An exotic Italian name
    Beatrix - love the literary pedigree
    Camille - soft, feminine and romantic
    Elsa - the name has a certain European flair and the nn Elsie is adorable.
    Sylvia - a lush and lyrical name with a smooth flow
    Tess - see Beatrix
    Roxana - a name with style and substance

    Middle Names Only

    Wren - I think this name works better in the middle spot
    Sidonie - people may think it's Sydney
    Bryony - I like the sound more than the look with the double y's.
    Miriam - see Wren
    Sybil - I love the name but in competition with the similar Camille, I chose Camille.

    I would eliminate...

    Tamsin - I'm not a fan of "Tam" names and I don't like the "sin" in it.
    Cosette - overly cutesy
    Colette - "dated"
    Mirabel - I prefer this name as a mn with something shorter (Tess Mirabel?)
    Zelda - I like the exotic vibe of the name but not the video game association.
    Delta - I think of the Tanya Tucker song "Delta Dawn" and actress Delta Burke.
    Zora - Zorro the TV series comes to mind as does and the film "Zorro: The Gay Blade".
    Nola - this name looks incomplete to me. Maybe as a nn for Magnolia.
    Cordelia - not my favourite Shakespearean name. I don't like the jagged mix of sounds: the hard "Cor" with the dainty Delia doesn't appeal to me.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I love Cosima, Zelda(), Beatrix, Cordelia, Elsa, Sylvia and Wren.

    The others are ok, none of them I really dislike. In case of Lenora, I prefer Lenore and Junia, I prefer Juno or June.
    Love,
    Zelda


    Baby Cosima,
    expected to arrive in or around September
